Any time you’re diving at 300 to 3000 metres/1000 to 10,000 feet above sea level, you’re altitude diving. If you want to explore the hidden world of a mountain lake, this course is for you.
Dive more challenging dive sites while you satisfy your curiosity for “I wonder what’s down there?” The fun part about altitude diving is that you can explore places many people have never seen.
You’ll learn the effects of pressure at higher altitudes and how to adjust your dive plan accordingly. Whether you use a recreational dive planner table (RDPTM), an electronic eRDPTM or a dive computer, you’ll learn how plan and make a dive at high altitudes. You’ll learn:
– Altitude dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques, problems and hazards
– Recreational Dive PlannerTM procedures for diving at altitude
– Safety stops and emergency decompression procedures at altitude
To purchase learning materials and equipment, contact your local PADI dive shop or resort.
Chances are if you’re scuba diving up high in the mountains you may also want to be prepared with the Dry Suit Diver and Ice Diver courses.
